40 + Style Winter

What to Wear to a Holiday Shindig

This week has been trying to kill me you guys… Oh. My. Stars.

Work. Family. Appointments. Holiday season stuff. Crazy work project stuff. Stuff that needs to get done stuff. Out of dog food. Broken tooth. Out of milk. Dang it, we are out of lettuce too??? I’m just so tired you guys… GAH. I’m so thankful today is Friday. I do apologize for the light posting. Forgive me.

So, to add to the hullabaloo, I am attending two Christmas parties next weekend. TWO. One Friday and one Saturday. I’m too practical for holiday dresses that can only be worn one way. I’ve tried. I have purchased and  returned four dresses over the past month. I have to know that I am going to get a lot of use out of an item for me to part with substantial amounts of cashola.

I decided to keep things simple and stick with black. I zhushed up my trusty separates with lots of sparkly jewelry, a pair of silver sparkly tights, and a super red lip. I’m planning on wearing this to the less fancy party of the two.
